This was the
follow up to the Log of the Molly B, describing how Pete
Hogan tried homesteading on Achillbeg Island in the West

goes a bit pear shaped. Along the way there are many tangential
comments on Pete's contemporaries and influences. This is
a companion volume to the Log of the Molly B and again,
has over 100 colour illustrations.
